Wayne Price

Meet the Manager

Having 14 years of experience in the health/social care sector provides me with the necessary grounding and knowledge to embark on this exciting journey at Harbour Residential. I have been a qualified nurse since 2007, completing my training at the University of the West of England.

I have held various roles in the NHS at both the Bristol General Hospital and Bristol Royal Infirmary, including as Senior Staff Nurse and Clinical Site Manager. After 10 years at the NHS, I then transitioned into the care home industry, working at 3 local care homes in Clinical Service Manager and HM roles.

I pride myself on achieving and maintaining high ratings with the CQC at all the homes I have worked at. Ensuring the consistent provision of the highest quality care and support possible to residents, staff and relatives is my priority.

It is a privilege to be a part of the Harbour Residential team and I very much look forward to meeting you all.
